Jamaica's idyllic climate makes it a year-round tropical destination. The average temperature is 77°F (25.5°C) in the winter months and 82°F (28°C) in the summer. The coastal plains of the north shore benefit from the trade winds that blow off the Atlantic. These are supplemented by morning and evening breezes caused by the land heating up by day and cooling at night. There are two rainy seasons, in May, and from August to October, but even then it doesn't rain every day and the showers typically last less than an hour. Whether traveling solo, as a couple or planning a group getaway- Jamaica offers the variety of accommodations and attractions to satisfy everyone. College spring breakers, singles, honeymooners and families all find what they are looking for in Jamaica's natural beauty and vibrant culture.
